Southampton are this morning reveling in a great win at Anfield that has given them the first spot at Wembley. They are now in the great position of just sitting back and watching the second semi to see who will join them.
If the tie had been balanced at 1-0 you fancy this would have been a real tussle. However, the 2-0 first leg victory for Man Utd leaves Hull with a mountain to climb. Hull do have home advantage and with nothing to lose there is every chance they will see this as a shot to nothing. They played well at Chelsea at the weekend and can feel a little aggrieved to have come away from there with no points. It should still give them confidence that they can match the big guns and there is little doubt they will be going all out for this tonight.
Man Utd are one of the form teams at the moment. They are most definitely playing the best they have since Mourinho took over. The last two matches are indicative of the attitude they have now compared to the last few years. Late goals against Liverpool and Stoke earned them draws that they would not have got in recent times. Those types of games are generally the ones that give you the belief that you aren’t going to be beaten.
All players and managers are involved in the game to win trophies but managers like Mourinho need trophies. He has a reputation that needs rebuilding somewhat and if he can secure a trophy for Man Utd in his first season in charge it really will be an impressive feat. The spot at Wembley is all but booked with the lead from the first leg and you just know Utd will be set up in a way to frustrate Hull and get at them on the break. Expect this to be a battle early on and if Hull don’t get that elusive strike then they will surely get punished as they commit more resources to that cause. This will be a comfortable win on the night for Mourinho’s men and if you fancy the Correct Score market then 3-1 has a lot of appeal.
